*WARNING: This episode includes language that may not be suitable for some listeners.*🎁 Enter to Win our One Year Anniversary Giveaway!In case you haven’t heard, this is our One Year Anniversary episode of ROTR. This is probably one of the most anticipated episodes we have ever had. It’s also a little unorthodox and a lot ridiculous. Less polished, less edited, and less professional than normal ROTR was founded around a table, on a porch at a bottle shop in Durham, NC We’re bringing back the roots of the podcast by treating this conversation like it started. As a group of friends sitting, drinking, and enjoying one another’s company. We have put together an episode with our friend Matt Evans from Red Paw packs.  Another way to put it is… We recorded our party as the episode On most episodes, we choose one very succinct topic to cover. In this episode, there are three topics with a lot of tangents in between.  So, fair warning, this is a two hour episode… Part 1 we’ll talk about our favorite episodes, moments, and events from a year of podcasting. Part 2 we’ll talk about the state of the DIY nation. Products, technology, and more. Part 3 is the main event where the guys take about their sew-off. If you’d like to engage with this episode in a different way, check out our YouTube Channel for videos of this episode. Finally, thank you… The DIY community has been remarkable since the beginning. Thank you for allowing us to serve you and for allowing us to continue this work. Find Us on Social Media 🚀
